Wow. Looks like I got tickets for the last show, and at a winery to boot. That ought to be fun. I wonder if this gives Glenn any time to train to tackle Mt. Everest by October (or at least the trail leading up to base camp?).
The press release goes on to say that 1) Essential Squeeze is due out only in the UK at the moment, and 2) that The Arctic Monkeys, Razorlight (who?), and Lily Allen all cite Squeeze as influences. Has the Squeeze Reader ever mentioned the rest of the band? For the record: John Bentley on bass, Stephen 'Lord' Large on keyboards and Simon Hanson on drums.
